two years, three months, three weeks, three days, and 18 hours gone

And then she was found.

Sort of. Do skeletal remains count as “she”? This person we loved and laughed with, even sometimes cried with. No, I don’t think it does. She isn’t there anymore, isn’t here. And by all appearances, she’s been gone from here this whole time, while her body was within a mile from home.

How do you process something like this? I mean, I knew it was coming and, really, I’m ok, but still. It would be different, I think, if things weren’t compounded by her two sons and a daughter-in-law who are, shall we say, on their worst behavior. The things they are pulling these days just baffles the mind and I cannot understand how they can do these things to their father. The lies, the half-truths, the cyber bullying, the one-sided media war; it’s really ridiculous and has been very hard to sit by and say nothing in defense. I know, though, that they’re going to take care of their own demise, just as soon as their 15 minutes of fame are over, I don’t need to stoop to a lower level in the meantime. As I’ve already heard, those who need to know the truth, already know the truth. Sure gives you an idea of who you can trust though, people are certainly letting their true colors be known.

So we sit and wait and see what happens. The remains were found two weeks ago now and no one has been charged with anything so I am thinking they are finding only proof of suicide. I believe that is the case as well, I just hope they reveal their findings soon so this can all be completely over.
